Our Kids Media, publisher of two of Canada’s most popular websites on kids’ camps and private schools, camps.ca and ourkids.net, recently announced the hiring of Travis Allison in the position of Social Media marketer. Previous to embarking into the dynamic, exponentially-growing world of Social Media, Allison was Executive Director at CAIRN Presbyterian Camping & Retreat Centres, from 2005 to 2007. He was co-director at Glen Mhor Camp for ten years before taking on responsibilities at CAIRN.
Although social media is a relatively young field, Allison has already established himself as an expert, having presented “The Internet Will Make You a Better Camp Director” at the 2009 Tristate international camping conference. His summer camp and Social-Media-related tweets have garnered him over 1000 followers on Twitter, and the Facebook page he developed for CAIRN has over 500 fans. He is also avid about video and photography.
“I am bursting with exciting ideas and I look forward to working with Our Kids’ clients and reader-families to bring great new ideas and discussion to our sites across the World Wide Web,” said Allison.
“This is another step forward in our growth,” said Andrew Stawicki, president of Our Kids Media. “Over the past two years, we have grown our websites to the point where this year, we received 650,000+ visits from families searching for information about schools and summer camp programs. We love to continue growing.”
